Dr. Khalil is not only professional in his care but he also is sympathetic. It's rare to find a physician of his caliber. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Khalil. 10. Excellent.

Dr. Khalil is the greatest seizure specialist in this country to me because I don't have seizures anymore at all.
Patient | December 29, 2016

Dr. Khalil really cares about my overall health, not just my neurological issue. I trust him and greatly value his opinion.
Patient | December 8, 2016

I have had a good experiences in seeing Dr. Kahlil.
Patient | December 6, 2016

Dr.Bassell Abou-Khalil is a fantastic neurologist. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a neurologist.
Patient | October 24, 2016

I've seen neurologists for 49 & years Dr. Abou-Khalil is the best! (no exaggeration!) He is kind, considerate & professional. He investigates my condition to provide the most appropriate care. He shares information & findings with me and involves me in my treatment planning (even for medication side effects that others may brush off). Dr. Khalil shows utmost respect for me & my wishes for my treatment, which is so important to me. I have other medical conditions & I always want him on my team, looking out for my epilepsy & seizure control. He cares for me as a patient and a whole person (I've had other doctors that did not seem to do so). I have not always been easy to work with given my stubbornness to lead as normal a life as possible. Even so, Dr. Khalil has been patient, kind & dedicated. He has not given up on me which has given me hope when I felt at a loss. I am very fortunate to have Dr. Khalil as my doctor!
Patient | September 29, 2016

Patient | September 19, 2016

He is a top notch dr. that I recommend to everyone I know.
Patient | September 3, 2016

He left the decision to be tested up to me when I came to know if I should be tested.
Patient | August 24, 2016

I feel very confident in the medical staff and my doctor
Patient | August 23, 2016

I always tell so many others of how great Vanderbilt is and my Neurologist is the best ever and has SUCH TRUE COMPASSION and cares from the heart. You have a name and not a number
Patient | August 18, 2016

I see Dr. Khalil once a year now - maintenance visits because he helped me get my seizures and fainting under control. I love him! He saved my life.
